The many Faces of Superman
Up to date on November 13, 2017 Sabre1000 moreContact Writer Superman, the Man of Steel
Superman, the Man of Steel is a comedian guide and cultural icon.
Everybody knows the most popular alien in fiction.
You’ll be able to see pictures from villages in Africa and there will probably be a kid sporting superman family shirt off a Superman T-Shirt.
And Superman is very popular in media of all sorts.
There may be an extended listing of people who’ve embodied the “Unusual Customer from one other World”, starting all the way again in 1940, simply two years after he debuted in Action Comics #1, 1938.
1. Ray Middleton
On the 1939 New York World’s Fair (which actually took place in 1940), Ray Middleton grew to become the first actor to play Superman in public, throughout “Superman Day”.
Yeah they had a “Superman Day” that quick. A testimony to how rapidly the character took off.
2. Kirk Alyn
The primary actor to play Superman on display screen, Kirk Alyn.
He was Superman twice, first within the 1948 Superman serial and again in Atom Man Vs. Superman (1950).
Allegedly he was offered the part of Superman within the 1951 Tv present however turned it down.
Three. George Reeves
The Superman I grew up with, though because the series ended earlier than I used to be even born, it was in reruns.
Reeves was the first Superman to seem in an actual film (Superman and the Mole Men) since Kirk Alyn’s appearances had been in serials.
And he was Superman in Adventures of Superman from 1952 to 1958.

4. Johnny Rockwell
A lot of people don’t know that in 1961, there was a proposed Superboy Television sequence.
A pilot was shot and Johnny Rockwell was the Boy of Steel.
The Television series was considered too costly to shoot and was scrapped.
However if you happen to look onerous enough, you’ll find the pilot on-line.
5. Bob Holiday
Yes there was a Broadway musical called “It’s a Chicken…It’s a Plane…It is Superman!”
Bob Vacation performed Superman in it and though it had a tough time (it only had 129 performances) it nonetheless was pretty much liked by critics and bought three Tony Award nominations.
And it’s superman family shirt off still alive in the present day with revivals in 1967, 1992, 2007, 2010 and 2013.
Take that Spider-Man!
6. David Wilson
On February 1, 1975, ABC broadcast a revamped model of “It’s a Bird…It is a Aircraft…It’s Superman!” as a Television special late at night.
David Wilson played Superman and i stayed up and watched it…sadly.
The only thing actually value noting about it is that it appeared three years before…
7. Christopher Reeve
I may need grown up with George Reeves, but Christopher Reeve will all the time be my Superman.
His portrayal of the Man Of Steel was everything I though the massive Blue Boy Scout should be.
He was humble, involved about his fellow man, powerful, but with a gentleness that overcame his strength.
This was Superman as a hero.
Years later in a comedian book Batman would say something that sums up how I feel about Reeve’s Superman….
“In some ways, Clark is essentially the most human of us all. Then…he shoots fire from the skies, and it is tough not to think of him as a god. And the way fortunate we all are that it does not happen to him.”
Eight. John Haymes Newton and Gerard Christopher
John Haymes Newton and Gerard Christopher both played Superboy in a (for back then) pretty respectable syndicated Tv sequence.
Perhaps I’m kinda biased because the stunning Stacy Haiduk performed Lana Lang.
The show ran from 1988 to 1992 and like I mentioned, really was not that unhealthy.
A part of the reason it wasn’t that unhealthy was as a result of it was backed by the producers of the first three Superman movies Ilya and Alexander Salkind.
